When it comes to guaranteeing value for today’s dollar, consumers are challenged every time they buy a product, secure a service or have an inquiry answered. Today, finding quality can appear to be a losing battle.
Imagine the delight of finding a business that goes above and beyond to not only satisfy customers, but also make them happy. Remember when businesses strived to create happy customers?
The gem known as Environmental Green Clean, a business established in 2009 with roots going back to 1995, is accessible through the free online service Home Advisor. Yes, you can find reliable FREE recommendations online, with excellent work and skilled contractors across the country — all of whom are screened and rated. There is no need to pay for such information and EGC’s details include glowing consumer reviews provided by verified customers, rather than bloggers racking up incentives or money for a glut of cooky-cutter testimonials or disgruntled/unethical employees with their own agendas.
Environmental Green Clean is a 2014 winner of the site’s coveted Best of Home Advisor, and most of the dozens of reviews it has maintain a perfect 5-star rating. EGC earned a Green Seal Certification and is also Green Advantage Certified. Green Seal approval reflects its 25 years’ experience at utilizing science-based programs to create a more sustainable world. Green Advantage emphasizes productivity, efficiency, safety and cost-cutting measures through a series of exams and other proven ability.
EGC also belongs to the Association of Specialists in Cleaning & Restoration, the United Professional Cleaning Alliance and the National Register of Professional Awning Cleaners.
Within 24 hours, EGC follows up on Home Advisor’s leads, and stays in dedicated contact with consumers as work progresses. Although a simple job may summon the company’s general expertise, EGC is more than willing to provide additional services, following through with minimal associated fees. It works on both commercial and residential properties.
Headed by owner John Arendt of Clinton Township, EGC serves the tri-county area with a plethora of jobs. Power-washing is geared to the age and materials of the surface being cleaned — from siding to concrete — with proven knowledge to remove the most stubborn of stains. He seeks added input from experts, if necessary, and returns until he has removed dirt and debris. Often, that includes cleaning surfaces by hand, because, as in the case of aging aluminum siding, some older surfaces can’t handle power blasts of water. Arendt’s trained eye also catches more subtle problems, such as aluminum finish drained onto bricks.
“I chose to work in this industry because why do we keep buying new, when restoration and maintenance is the key to anything in life?” said Arendt.
As he and his crew complete the work, expect him to notice need with an ambition to be spurred in other areas: gutter-cleaning, eaves nail pops, holes around bricks needing to be filled with insulation, window caulking, and so on. Additional tasks sometimes require additional attention to detail, such as returning to shave insulation filler with a razor.
And, if washing causes streakiness in any trim, Arendt offers to match the color and re-paint to pristine condition. Yes, the results are as important to him as they are to you.
EGC also doesn’t shy away from hard work, and either agrees to take on other jobs as a result, or help make referrals — such as with concrete sealing — if they need to be done. When Arendt leaves the premises, he plans to be as happy with the security and looks of his work as the homeowner is.
Warranties are offered and free estimates are another service available.
Naturally, this type of work ethic earns high marks — and positive referrals. Arendt, wisely, is taking that into account, too.
“I am currently offering $50 cash for each new referral that results in closing of a job for a friend or neighbor,” said Arendt.
